Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The one-span, 75'-long, elliptical reinforced concrete arch bridge has two-high rail pipe railings mounted atop concrete curbs that are spalled and cracked. The bridge is supported on concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The spandrel walls are bulging outward and have large horizontal cracks extending from abutment to abutment. Built in 1914 by G. W. Ensign Inc., the bridge is one of at least eight identified reinforced concrete arch highway bridges from 1909 to 1918 in Cumberland County, and one of over 270 pre-1920 examples statewide. Other earlier and more complete examples better represent the historical and technological significance of the early application of the reinforced concrete arch bridge technology in the county context. The bridge is not historically distinguished by its setting.
